More Medicine for Health Clinics
“I didn’t know,” said one Afghan village woman about the life-saving information she heard from a volunteer Community Health Worker. The directions about boiling water and hand-washing came too late to save the woman’s first three babies, who died of preventable and treatable illnesses. Now, for the first time, the woman is mother to a four-year-old—a healthy one. She learned lessons in health and hygiene, nutrition, vaccinations and breastfeeding, and put them to use to keep her family healthy. “Because of these new informations I have a very healthy family, and a two-year-old healthy son,” she said. And she is not keeping this valuable knowledge to herself, she said. “Now I am helping my neighbors.”
Your gift can go a long way to provide this kind of care. Life-saving inoculations, doctors, nurses, midwives, medicines, health and hygiene lessons, are all a part of Sozo’s wholistic health care strategy.
